Olperl’s Mountain Adventure World
Hiking with children on the circular hike with the legendary "Springgingl"
Since time immemorial children in Sesto have listened to the mysterious, exciting tales of Olperl with their eyes wide and their ears pricked.
But who, or what, is he?
Neither man nor beast. You might say he is the good, but temperamental little spirit of the Sesto Dolomites. Hidden deep in the woods, the Olperl only comes out every now and again, to frighten hikers with shrill whistles and play mischievous tricks on them. A lively little imp! With a bit of luck, so the saying goes, you might come across this well-known Sesto resident today in his mountain adventure world on Monte Elmo. But whatever happens, the interactive and buggy-friendly family circular hike is always well worth a look! Along the 1.5 km-long route are numerous natural adventures waiting to be discovered. See local wild animals, let your bare feet be tickled by the world of the mountains and forests, scramble, splash and enjoy the views – and remember to keep your eyes open for the Olperl. Who knows? Perhaps he might be squatting down chuckling mischievously behind the next rock…
